At Humbert Road Dentistry, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the treatment and service that they need in order to effectively pursue healthier dental hygiene. We stress the fact that you need to take preventive measures such as regular brushing and flossing and that you need to maintain consistent meetings and checkups with your dentist. One very severe issue is a cavity. This is a common form of tooth decay that can easily be stopped if caught through a routine checkup. If left to grow and fester, a small cavity can rapidly turn into serious and dangerous decay.
When advanced decay occurs, you could suffer from severe pain, discomfort, tooth sensitivity, and other symptoms. You may need a root canal in order to remove the infection. It is important to know that this is a standard procedure that can quickly be done by our office; however, it is also important to know that it can be easily avoided. Our doctors can provide with you with the treatment that you need as well as the information, advice, and guidance you require to prevent further issues like this from happening in the future.
If you need a root canal, you may also require a crown for the same tooth in order to restore its durability and protect it from further decay. After the root canal is performed, you may need to make a second visit to get fitted with a temporary crown while a mold is taken to create a permanent crown. If this is what you need, you may have to come back to be fitted with the permanent crown, which is glued over top of your tooth like a cap. Our group of dentists can help you through every step of this process.
Our primary focus is to supply excellent service to our patients. We accomplish this by providing the best possible treatment, as well as information and education for our patients. We believe that you can greatly benefit from our knowledge, and you can work to prevent serious dental issues from arising. Severe tooth decay can cause extreme discomfort and pain. In some cases, you may suffer from minor pain and continue to put the dentist off. If you suddenly experience a flare-up, then you can look to our group for emergency dental care. Let us work with you to pursue better health in your case.
